Shelton, a coach on "The Voice," was pleased when Cassadee Pope, a winner on the show, won for Breakthrough Video of the Year. It was really great to see a superstar so happy for a young talent he helped mentor. "I honestly am shocked to be standing here holding this. I'm freaking out because Cassadee won, I'm so excited for her, so y'all have made this already an unbelievable night for me," he said.

Lionel Richie Wins an Award!

Yes, you heard that correctly, Lionel Richie won a Country Music award. He won for his collaboration with Luke Bryan for the 2013 CMT Artists of the Year performance of "Oh No/All Night Long."

"I won an award with Lionel Richie. That's all I gotta say," Bryan said.

The Jay Z/Solange Fight Spoof

During Kristen Bell's opening monologue, the actress waited for an elevator, then you knew it was coming - elevator footage of Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line popped up on screen of them fighting each other in black and white. When the elevator door opens, the fight quickly ends. Bryan jokes, "What happens in the elevator, stays in the elevator."

Kristen Bell Jokes About Her Marriage

While looking for a co-host, Bell meets up with her husband Dax and he pokes fun at their marriage in the best way.

"Okay, so just to recap -- if we co-host -- we'll have to compromise a ton and you'll talk a lot, then I'll wait for you to change into different outfits ... and then no sex ... yeah, I'm already in an arrangement kind of like that," Shepard says turning down Bell's request for him to co-host.
